The 2017 Toyota Sequoia

Ranking in the top half of all large sport utility vehicles (SUVs) the 2017 Sequoia is indeed recommended for its class. You can seat 8 people plus carry their gear, so don't worry about keeping everyone happy. Its easy with the Sequoia. This is the tallest, widest and longest full-size SUV from Toyota. These characteristics improve ride quality and enhance space inside, plus it contributes to directional stability.

Based on Toyota's Tundra pickup, the 2017 Sequoia is a big brute of a truck-based SUV, and a good one. The smooth, forceful powertrain is impressive. It has a roomy and comfortable interior. Its superb towing ability and off-road capacity are notable for this group of big SUVs.

Your 2017 Sequoia looks fairly simple and won't stand out in a crowd except for its size. Nonetheless, it is functional and clean. Its fuel economy is acceptable for large SUVs but not competitive overall. The 3rd-row seat actually fits adults. Big doors and sliding 2nd row seats make that third row easy to get to. Plus both the 2nd and 3rd row slide forward and fold flat.

Updates to the 2017 Sequoia include optional blind-spot monitoring and lane-departure warning. In addition, the Entune touch-screen audio system became standard equipment. This Entune app has options for integrating your smartphone for navigation, real-time traffic updates, weather, Pandora, sports and gas prices. One definite strength of the 2017 Sequoia is the Powertrain SR5 in its 4 wheel drive. This is the 5.7L V8 6-speed automatic at work. Don't overlook the rear window that is power-retractable.

There are three trim levels for the 2017 Sequoia SUV: SR5, Limited and Platinum. The SR5 has a rear-view camera, roof rack, 3 zone automatic climate control, 8 way driver seat, 4 way front passenger seats, integrated fog lights, leather-trimmed tilt/telescoping steering wheel, power tilt/slide moonroof , Bluetooth hands-free telephone controls, 18-inch alloy wheels and all the expected power and convenience features including Entune Audio Plus.

It is a rather high step to climb into the cabin of the 2017 Sequoia. It is also a long reach from the driver seat to some controls. Some agility and braking efficiency is also reduced. It is amazing that the independent rear suspension allows the third row seat to actually fold flat into a well. This yields extra cargo space which is always an issue with SUVs. The Sequoia does have lower towing ability in terms of pounds than some of its competition.

The 2017 Sequoia’s has thorough soundproofing which reduces noise levels, even in the third row. The Sequoia has many repeat customers because of its great resale value, reliability, flexible seating and reputation for a quiet and reasonably comfortable ride.
